Thank God, I don't live in Chile A woman was pulled over and had her driver's license taken from her because she was fat.

To get her license back she had to prove she was dieting.

Fat causes PCOS well, that is what a few doctors are saying. Yet, in my experience, and many of those I know with PCOS, controlling PCOS helps women to lose some of their weight.

And, in several studies, it has been shown that PCOS is actually being diagnosed now, where earlier it was not. I wish the doctors/researchers would actually research more treatment options and/or a cure instead of worrying about solely about fat.

Are we seeing more cases of PCOS due to obesity levels? Or is it the PCOS causing the obesity levels, especially in teenagers? My doctor is sure I had PCOS starting at 15 years old. 15! I didn't find out then because weird periods, odd hair growth, etc were considered part of being a teenager.

Now, that PCOS is being discussed, and looked for, of course they're finding more cases of it. And parents are reading the information, realizing their daughters are having issues, and having them treated.

Sounds like a good thing to me.
